Powerboat Industry Bounces Back After 2008 Recession

Held every October, the 2014 United States Powerboat Show closed with the highest attendance figures in years. Exhibitors found that in addition to increased attendance, 2014 reflected more genuine interest by buyers than in previous years. They pointed to the combined factors of sales, crowds, solid consumer interest, and a growing number of first-time boat buyers as an indication that the powerboat industry is coming back after years of economic stagnation.

Testimonials from 2014 United States Powerboat Show

Tri-State Marine
John Byrnew, President
"We only do the local shows and I must say this year in Annapolis is much better than last year's show.  We have sold some boats and we expect to sell more based on the interest and the leads that we put together in Annapolis." 

North Bay Marina
Tommy Fowler
"Very encouraged by the show and the traffic.  Things are much better than they were three or four years ago.  We have made sales and gotten leads that we will be able to work with."

Chesapeake Yacht Center
Josh White
"This was a fantastic show and so much better than last year.  We have sold five boats so far."

Cruiser Cats
Clark Boeken, Director
"This was our best show in four or five years.  It was twice as good as last year.  We are very happy." 

MarineMax
Capt. Robert Janes, Service Director
"I have no complaints.  This was a good show with great traffic.  We sold some boats and we collected some promising leads.  What more could you want?" 

Martini Yacht Sales
Paul Dour, Yacht Consultant

JustBoatLoans
Larry Reagan
"This is by far our best show in seven or eight years.  We delveloped relationships, collected leads and had many conversations at both shows.  I am very pleased."

North Point Yacht Sales
David Cox, Yacht Sales and Brokerage
"Opening day at Brokerage Cove had high quality customers.  Friday the traffic was through the roof and the quality was great.  Saturday was packed but the quality did not match Friday.  Sunday was light in terms of traffic but I may have a buyer,  It's all worth it if I sell a boat."
